"We now live in Canada but originally we come from Penketh and Warrington. My husband was in The Templars and they used to play the Parr Hall, Bell Centre and of course the Co-oporative Hall. The Templars played at Liverpools' Cavern Club (original) a couple of times when it was Warrington night.
They also opened at the Parr Hall for The Small Faces when Stevie Marriot played with them. Also, they opened for Gerry & The Pacemakers at Frodsham. They also opened for Johnny Kidd & The Pirates when their PA system was not working. In addition, Johnny Kidd borrowed my husbands amp that night. He asked my husband did he owe anything on his Vox amp? Of course he told him he did, and lo and behold Johnny Kidd gave him the money to pay off his amp. We have lots of stories they also played at Blackpool Tower. Kris Culeton managed them he is known as The Longford Lover."
